Notre-Dame du Finistère: Organ

Agreed, the lower part of this shot looks a bit messy, but I've included it for having a scale on the dimensions of this very, very impressive organ of Notre-Dame du Finistère. Unfortunately we missed the regular Monday organ concert; I'm sure the experience would have been breathtaking.

Breathtaking and spectacular image, this organ is capped
so magnificently at the top.

@Phil David Alexander Morris: A spectacular device, indeed.

So you've just finished building your church or cathedral after a couple of hundred years and you want a big,kicking organ that will impress and last a couple of years. Costco, IKEA and www have yet to where do you go, and who do you trust to design and build one of these...what a challenge it must've been then for aspiring church builders!
Impressive MS!

@Ted: Yes, it's a beast! :-) But a nice one: I really would have loved to listen to her!

I like the people at the bottom, it really emphasizes just how big the organ is ! Great job!

The look of this organ marries well the preacher's pulpit in the same church. I think they were
<meant for each other>! Impressive!

@Japanalia: Most likely from the same artist, unfortunately I didn't find much data.

To bad you missed the concert - it was scheduled to play Happy Birthday for me!

@Christine Walsh: That would have been an impressive surprise, without doubt!

Very brave facing the flare of that open doorway but, wow, it becomes the star of the show !

@Ronnie 2¢: I've found an image with closed doors elsewhere, and I think I would have prepared this. You can't have it all!
